An ocean view

I called to see how your weekend went
you'd been so excited, nervous even
giddy like a school girl over someone new
life is like that I guess, love sweeps us away
makes birds sing better and the sky more blue
so fresh the world around us, our vision glows
I was surprised in not hearing back from you
surprised too by the call I got from your sister
telling me of your fatal heart attack
while watching the sun set, you and him
laughing and enjoying a glowing ocean view
